Presented by Dr. Somesh N. Kaushik, ND, BAMS, MPH, MPA, E-RYT 500

Getting to the root cause of a disorder is the tenant of Ayurveda. With skin disorders the main causes are diet and lifestyle – the effect of which an individual may be unaware. Nutrition and habits that aggravate the basic nature of an individual cause imbalances that contaminate body tissues and can manifest as skin disruptions. Knowing your basic constitution (dosha), and how to maintain balance, is key to avoiding, and reversing, skin disorders.

 

Come and discover:

  • The body type that is most prone to skin disorders 
  • How seasonal changes affect the body constitution and promote skin disorders
  • Diet and lifestyle changes that maintain balance and reverse skin disorders
  • Treatments, and home remedies, for the root cause of skin disorders
